mToolTip Template 1.02
mToolTip is very nifty freeware plugin done by bankrupt that lets you see lots of
information just by hovering your mouse over a contact on your contact list.
It is very highly customizable, but perhaps due to that fact it might be quite
difficult for some people to set up decently, as default settings leave a lot
to wish for.
Here' s my template for this plug-in [feel invited to take a look at the
screenshot]. It won't fit everybody, nor does it support all the available
protocols - after all it's something I did for myself to suit my needs.
The protocols it was test with are as follow: MSN, AIM, GG, MetaContacts,
WorldTime, Weather. It will work with most IM protocols that the plugin captures
variables from by default.
So what exactly does it show?

Almost all the fields are optional, so if no data is present for them they are
simply skipped. I wish mToolTip had more logic possibilities, especially the
OR operator, then it would be possible to integrate it more with plugins such
as UserInfoEx, since now it leads to doubling of data [ie a user have specified
age in their online profile and we have done the same in UIE, and two ages are
displayed as a result].
